Woodworking & Basic Carpentry

Raelle Houle | Balanced Building & Reflexologist

"Hello my name is Raelle Houle. I am from Paddle Prairie Metis Settlement currently living in Parkland County. I am a Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter and a Reflexologist. I picked two careers out of a hat and went with it!"


As a kid I always helped my Dad with carpentry projects, and finally made a career out of it at the end of my 20’s.  I have been practicing reflexology over the past ten years, after stumbling upon it accidentally. A conventional job never worked well for me, so I created my own job doing both carpentry and reflexology sometimes in the same day. I am the kind of person that loathes monotony, variety is definitely my spice of life.


I have a thirst for knowledge. I like to learn how to do things for myself, and why people do them, and how they are beneficial for the world. My journey has taken me as far as the mountains of Nepal, to better master my skills. I have sought out and attained jobs in fields I only understood on paper, to be able to be a more well rounded tradesperson. I do not shy away from the unknown, I dive in and use the opportunity to grow and expand my skills. I am proud of my skills, especially the ones I learned the hard way. With the help of Cher and Prairie Rose Sustainable Skills Inc. I am excited to share my knowledge with you. I hope you gain the confidence and pride in your abilities when you attend a class and see what you are capable of achieving.
